Knownas" BAHUBALI" it is said to be the tallest monolith statue in the world. Thousands of devotees congregate here ton perform the special Mahamastakabhisheka , a spectacular ceremony held once in 12 years, when the statue of Gommateshwara is anointed with milk,curd, ghee, honey, saffron and gold coins. It is worth visiting place."

"Medium size hill , has steps cut on the rocks to climb. Shoes are not allowed to be worn while climbing so carry 2-3 pair of socks and wear one on top of other while climbing. Lot of temples on the top. Chandragupta Maurya spent his final days here."
